185. The MIR-Method For When You Feel Fragmented
Does it feel like you’re being spread out sideways? As if you’re being pulled in all directions? And do you feel thin, a little see-through because of this? As if you don’t really exist? As if the fibers of your body are everywhere and nowhere? And at the same time, do you feel confused and awkward, or have trouble concentrating and forget things? Then you are fragmented. Or rather, your energy is fragmented. It’s a phenomenon that many people are familiar with, but many people don’t realize it. It happens to you when you focus your attention all week on all kinds of things and release a part of your energy. It causes you to not get anything done.
How do you become fragmented?
There are four ways to become fragmented:
1. You meet a lot of people during the week. Everywhere you give a bit of your attention and lose a bit of your energy.
2. You sit behind the computer a lot. You visit a lot of websites and scroll for a long time though the Facebook timeline, causing energy lines to flow from you to all kinds of people. And via these lines, your energy empties.
3. Everything you do, you do with your mind. You read, study, think, think, think. You’ve lost contact with your body and all your energy has gone every which way because of all the thinking.
4. You’ve had an emotional trauma. At such a moment it’s as if your energetic body, as if made of glass, has shattered. The shards fly every which way and your energy has spread all over as well. You can’t find yourself anymore.
What are the symptoms?
Your energy is fragmented when you notice that:
- You’re confused. You can’t find your keys and forget appointments.
- You trip, fall down the stairs, bump your head, let things drop out of your hands.
- You can’t focus. You want to do things but just can’t make them happen.
How do you collect your energy again?
With the MIR-Method you can bundle your energy again. You do that by stroking your hands and saying the 9 steps. For an explanation, please watch the instruction video. The MIR-Method gives your subconscious assignments to collect your energy again via the 9 steps. Eating food that your body needs, via step 5: Supplement all shortages, or by clearing your energetic body with step 8: Optimize chakras and aura. And step 9: Clarify mission helps you with an important extra step: experiencing your hobby. People who are working towards a burnout often forget to spend time on their hobby. And you can read more this here, article 39, “Clarify Mission About Your Hobby”.
Why is a hobby so important?
If you are busy doing your hobby, doing what you like doing most, you are collecting your energy again. You stop thinking and work with your hands. You fill yourself with love for what you are doing. It causes the Heart chakra to open and collect your energy. It’s as if your heart uses a vacuum cleaner hose to suck energy back into it. Slowly but surely all the pieces of energy return to you. Your energetic body is slowly built up again. I use the word “slowly” purposefully, because this usually isn’t done after doing your hobby one time. It is often a matter of doing your hobby daily for a couple of hours for a week or two to collect your energy. It’s that important to do what you like doing best!
Doing something intensively is using the right side of your brain
What also happens when you do your hobby is that you’re using your right-hand brain. This causes you to make contact with your incredibly large potential, the world of imagination, and the world in which anything is possible. It gives you a feeling of space and freedom that strengthens your feeling of happiness. You leave the limited thinking of your left-brain half in which everything is stiff and rigid. You begin to think creatively with the right half of your brain and see new possibilities. You suddenly see new solutions for problems. You get such a new impulse of energy that you collect and build up your own energy again.
Being intensively busy equals letting go
And finally, you let go of all the energetic lines that you still have towards people. That happens because while doing your hobby you are so intensively busy that you forget everything around you. It’s as if you completely dissolve into what you are doing. The lines don’t have any support and disappear. You liberate yourself and make yourself completely yourself again. You find yourself again.
And what about you? What are your hobbies? What would you love to fill your days with? Painting, knitting, sewing clothing. Or working on an old car, arranging flowers, making music, enjoying nature or collecting stones? And how do you feel when you are doing it? I’d love to hear about it from you so you can inspire others to rediscover their hobbies! Please write about it below. Thank you!
My wish is that you can gather yourself nicely!

I love to spend my time hula hooping to music or making art. When I am doing those things I feel happy, creative, and joyful.
What if u don’t know what that is anymore. I don’t know what I like to do anymore.
Sounds like you are fragmented… Is it possibe for you to go out in nature to regain some quiet in yourself?
Hope you can find ‘yourself’ back!
Greetings from the Netherlands!
Thank you Mireille, I am guilty of scrolling through websites and Facebook for way too long…now I know where that drained, empty feeling comes from. I used to do so many hobbies; sewing, knitting, calligraphy, art. I honestly don’t know why I stopped, except for getting hooked on the internet.
Thank you for pointing out the connection between doing what we love and feeling like a whole person again!
I feel SO excited that you got the message! Thank you for receiving it! Hope you will find your way back to the knitting wool and yes… calligraphy! I have just started that myself again. Takes some time to get the feel of the calligraphy pens back again.
Wishing you lots of love with your rich life again!

P.S. I am preparing myself to leave Facebook and trying to inspire as many people as possible to follow me. 🙂
Thank You, Mireille. This article hit me really.
To be fragmented is so very easy, to fall in to.
But to work with a hobby is so important.
I know this, but seldom take care off doing.
The tric is to concentrate the mind.
To focus on the important things in life.
Thank You / Rolf
Yes indeed, to become aware of what is most important in life is 1 step. However, it also helps to put your hobby in sight. For example, dusting off your guitar and placing it visible in your living room. Then, after a few days you will start to pick it up and do some chords. Then you will feel the love for music again. Sometimes focusing only in your head just doesn’t do the trick.
